Rather, just specify the jobid as a bare argument.  The script does not 
accept a --jobid option.  Technically, you could backtrace the jobid by 
searching for a job, currently running on that recording, using a 
command with the same binary name as that stored in the database.  But 
there is no way you could make it 100% accurate for all scenarios, and 
it's easier to just require the use of %JOBID% for that behavior.
